The Black Saturday bush fires devastated many areas of Victoria and many animals including pets and native wild life lost their homes, habitats and their lives.


The Animal Remembrance Day is an opportunity for the community to come together to remember the beloved pets that were lost or injured in the fires. It is also an opportunity to reflect on the devastating and unprecedented loss of over 1 million animals and native wildlife on Black Saturday.


Organised by the RSPCA, the Animal Remembrance Day will be held at Rochford Winery on the outskirts of the Yarra Valley. This free outdoor event will bring together Victoria’s fire affected communities, emergency services, animal aid organisations and the general public for a morning of reflection and contemplation.


Through music, readings and visual presentations, the Animal Remembrance Day will be an opportunity for the community to acknowledge the animals affected by the bush fires. This event will acknowledge the emergency services, animal aid organisations, volunteers and the public who rescued and cared for countless animals affected by the fires.


If you were directly impacted by the Black Saturday Bushfire, we invite you to take part in the service. Through a display of seed cards, you will be able to share your memories and stories of your beloved pets and animals. These cards will be displayed at the event and will then go on to be planted in the areas affected by the fires. In years to come, the trees that grow from these cards will provide habitat and feed for animals in these regions.


RSPCA Victoria will also provide transport from the bushfire affected regions to this event. If you would like to take part in the service, or require transport to the event please contact RSPCA Victoria directly on 03 9224 2222.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
